Not sure if any of this applies to the question, but I'll throw it out for consideration. I have a Delta 50-850 with clear flex. Lots of static, but didn't worry about it--uncomfortable at times but not a big deal. I added a galvanized trash can with a LV lid. The can is on the concrete floor. With the can in the picture the static issue has totally disappeared.
